4th October For Sisters in Spirit Vigil

October 4th is the day on which we honour the memory of hundreds of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada and also the day on which we help to raise awareness to demand action for these missing women by insisting on a national inquiry.  I have listed a number of vigils occurring around Region 3 (plus 2 in Toronto)  on Thursday October 4th and I hope that you will make time to attend one in your area.  I have included a link to the joint statement where you can also print off a copy of the petition with the address to send it to when you have filled it with names that demand justice.  In solidarity, dora – Chair, Provincial Women’s Committee
